  • Sarah Birt - Administrative Assistant

    Sarah comes to us by way of Minnesota. She met her husband Zach while they were both in Bible school in Montana before they migrated south to Texas. She loves to play games, read books and do projects around the house. She is great at learning new things to help us operate more smoothly around the church!

  • Amy Eubanks - Children's Ministry Coordinator

    Amy joined us in 2022. She has been passionate about helping children learn and grow from an early age. She grew up knowing she wanted to be a teacher and taught elementary and preschool students for many years. She enjoys spending time outside with her family and friends as well as working on a sewing project or reading a new book. She is excited to work with children at The Grove because she believes God's purpose for children is to be brought to Him and be immersed in the truth of the Gospel. She and her husband, Andrew, have three energetic children. She also runs a young mother's group on Wednesday mornings.

  • Tommy Hudgins - Facilities Director

    Tommy joined us in 2020 after the Eastern Hills merger. He has been an invaluable member of our staff and takes care of our facilities--from mowing to pest control and everything in between. On his time away from the church, he's a special needs bus driver for the GISD. He and his wife, Dena, love to camp and spend time with the grandkids.


    Judy began as our Connections Director in 2023. She will likely be one of the first people you meet as she is here to help those newer to our church find meaningful connections. She and her husband, Ali, lead the Gateway Group, a small group designed for new attenders and visitors.
